Malik Zaire is a star quarterback for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He has been able to lead his team through victories and losses, through the tough times and the good times. But during an incident during Virginia, Zaire wouldn’t be able to play for the rest of the season.
On September 12,2015, Zaire had broken his ankle and would be out for the rest of the season. It was very difficult for the team to overcome since Zaire was one of the best quarterbacks on the team. That night the Irish won but they also lost a very valuable player on the team. Zaire said that he was disappointed that he wouldn’t be able to play on the team but he saw this as a time to “evaluate his progress” so far in his career. The Irish would eventually recover from Zaire’s loss , but he would try and contribute to the team as much as he could. This season Zaire is happy to be back on the field!
During this past year Zaire has overcome a lot, from injuring his ankle to having surgery and not being able to play during the rest of last years season. But, finally things are better this year since Zaire is now the staring quarterback on the team and has now recovered from his ankle injury. Zaire said that he is really looking forward for this seasons football games!
